Czech Editor Says Israel
Must Win Any New War
or Face 'Super-Pogrom'
LONDON (JTA)—The organ of
the Czechoslovak Writers Union
said in an editorial that Israel
must win any new war with the
Arabs to avoid a super-pogrom
"because the Arabs do not take
prisoners and the Israelis have
nowhere to retreat."
The editorial in "Listy," signed
by Peter Chudozilov, said "The
Jews do not want war, but if it
comes about they must not fail to
win. Think of this during the next
few days, at least for a moment."

Minister Andrian Dimitriu, stood
firm against the resolution, pre-

He said he was not authorized by
his government to sign anything.
The resolution also attacked
West Germany for allowing "re-

demands that West Germany abol-

war crimes prosecutions which
goes into effect at the end of this
year and attacked the U.S. on
Vietnam. But he refused to say
a word against Israel.

Italian Leftist Upset
by 'Anti-Zionist' Front
ROME (JTA) — A writer in a
left-wing journal says "crude anti-
Semitism" is emanating from ex-

of anti-Zionism. Pietro Buttita, an
author and journalist, noted the
appearance of anti-Semitic leaflets
and inscriptions in Rome streets
during public demonstrations and
while President Richard M. Nixon
visited Rome last month.
Writing in Opinion, a weekly
published by the left-wing of the
Nenni Socialist Party, Buttita said
the authors of the leaflets were
neo-Nazi and neo-Fascist groups
but that they shared the anti-
Zionist attitudes of the extreme
"Are we not in the presence of
anti-Semitism originating in non-
traditional quarters?" he wrote.
Buttita is the author of "The

Rocky Urged to Help N.Y. City University
NEW YORK (JTA) — The New
York Board of Rabbis and the
local chapters of four national
Jewish organizations have urged
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and
the State Legislature to reconsider
planned cuts in the budget of City
University in order to ensure
"higher education for all high
school graduates regardless of
race, color or creed."
Telegrams to the governor and
minority leaders of the State Sen-
ate and Assembly were signed by
the American Jewish Committee,
American Jewish Congress, Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai Brith,
Jewish Labor Committee and the
New York Board of Rabbis.
The plea was motivated by grow-
ing concern that the lack of need-
ed funds would curtail admissions
to City University. Chancellor Al-
bert Bowker announced that the
university may be forced by lack
of funds to establish quotas repre-
sentativo of the city's population.
Jewi1i organizationss are concern- ...
ed that such quotas would work to .
the detriment of the Jewish stu-
dents. Efforts are being made to
arrange a meeting between the
governor and representatives of
the Jewish organizations.
